The band’s singer/song writer, Alynda Lee Segarra sang beautifully, reminding me slightly of Catherine Irwin from Freakwater and Jolie Holland.
She was backed by a fine fiddle player, Yosi Perlstein. Aylanda herself played guitar and later a banjo.
The highlight of the set for me was the song ‘Too Much of a Good Thing’ and the poignant ‘Sali’s Song’, written about her friend Sali Grace who was brutally murdered in 2008.
Here’s a clip of the band playing ‘Too Much of a Good Thing’ in 2009.
